These are some of the principles of courtship: ask God’s blessing at the beginning of a relationship; enter it with direction, toward discerning marriage; involve the families; be accountable to others; pace yourselves as you spend time together; and always listen for the Lord’s guidance.

Our Willingness to Wait
Reveals the Value We Place
On The Object We’re Waiting a For
They are not exactly the restore your faith in humanity kind of pictures per a couple of requests, but they did put a smile on my face as I thought of them when I was running a tough part of the trail this morning. I looked up, and a lone hiker was walking down, she saw me smile and her frown changed. So now I remind myself everyday to make sure I have a smile on my face.
When people say, “the sex might be good but it is not worth a shitty personality” the same goes for the opposite. If the sex isn’t good then the personality will eventually not be enough.
… I feel bad for the people who save them selves for marriage and then the sex sucks.
I don’t think this is actually true. Part of the reason I decided to wait is so that personality and love of each others souls would be the more important factors in our relationship than physical pleasure. Also I’ve heard many people say the sex turned out to be poor (for one reason or another), but that they would never regret marrying their partner because they love them.
